Does anyone know any form of soft drinks that don't include this stuff? Its nearly everywhere...while I know its near impossible to never consume any high fructose corn syrup, what are there any drinks that at least don't have it way up high in the ingredients list?

Meh. HFC is everywhere. And that is far from the only thing in soft drinks to watch out for. All the phosphorus in those drinks will leach the calcium out of your bones - hardly a good thing, especially for females.

These are only some of the worries and you'll go crazy if you over analyze this stuff. I work in a chemical plant for the industrial sector. Many of the chemicals we use in our manufacturing to make process chemicals, cleaning chemicals, boiler treatment chemicals, mining chemicals, oil & gas production chemicals, car wash chemicals, etc., you will find in packaged processed foods. You will find them in your tooth paste, your shampoo, you hand soap, laundry detergent, eye drops, cough medicine, etc.

What I'm trying to say is in a higher dosage these things can me harmful but in the quantities we consume or use they have been deemed safe for humans by government appointed agencies (Food & Drug, etc.). Now don't get me wrong, some are better off in moderation, others may one day be found to be harmful and removed from production (red dye in smarties was found to be cancerous ... we used the same dye at one time), or the government makes money on it and will label harmful but allow it still to be sold (cigarettes). No matter I think one would go crazy trying to break down all of the foods that they eat or all of the products they use because they may contain small amounts of harmful ingredients. Just be smart about things ... moderation or elimination is the key.

Diet sodas are sugar free. Dont taste as nice, and still got all the other cr$p in them, but hey, you cant have everything

Outside of that there is Water (mineral or tap), fruit juice, milk and some cordials.

Stop drinking soft drinks, except for maybe 1 drink a week or so (and 1 drink means 1 moderate-sized glass, not a whole 3 liter bottle)...

here is an interesting bit about high fructose corn syrup:

According to a study published by "The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition", Americans ate an average of about a half pound of high-fructose corn syrup per person in the year 1970. By 1997, Americans were consuming 67.5 pounds each! thats over a pound of the stuff a week.
